Messenger Plus! and Winfixer - once again.
I am sick to death of this. I keep seeing Winfixer pushers using the Messenger Plus! Sponsor Program to infect systems with malware. I keep reporting it to Patchou and/or blogging about it, yet I see it happen again, and again, and again.
How many times have I complained about malware using the Messenger Plus! Sponsor Program to spread? Well, I have complained by email and/or via my blog twice this month (December 12 and tonight's entry), November 12, June 30, June 26, June 25 and April 7. 8 months is more than enough time for C2Media / Circle Distribution to clean up their act.
I'm beginning to wonder if the problem really is rogue clients. I'm also beginning to wonder if Circle Distribution aka C2Media is doing anything when these "rogue clients" are reported.
I am beginning to suspect that Circle Distribution / C2Media have absolutely no intention of blocking winfixer - maybe they're not willing to give up the money. Just how hard is it to block drivecleaner.com, or errorsafe, or any of the other malware variants that are being spread around the net the the Messenger Plus! Sponsor Program?
Here is today's attempt to install winfixer on my machine - the screenshots were taken within the last hour:
First blank window and dialogue box:
